In 1950....



James H. Wynn jr. phone number 4253, lived here.

I updated the timeline on the side bar.

I found a city directory that the archives did not have at the library. Our library had some type of flood from sprinklers or something (not rain) a while back, and it was closed. It looks like most of the art books were damaged. All those nice large books are all wavy. The rest of the library looks the same, except for the carpet. It bothers me. Too linear. The lines of the carpet do not line up with the rows of shelving making everything look wop-sided. I know, I should have made a pic.

What is up with libraries, and rif-raf hanging out there? gesh.....

Those old city directories are great. Ours in Minneapolis even listed professions after the name-- a nice detail to have when you are researching.

Great idea posting the timeline! I missed the original post.

Ours does as well. After looking up the street address, I looked up the name,separate section, however James Wynn was not listed there.

I've been asking myself that same question for um...how long have I been working here? Sigh.
